A baptismal model for ministry in the Episcopal Church
Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist are the two primary sacraments of the Church and The Book of Common Prayer clearly puts them at the core of our liturgical life together and at the core of ministry. I hope in this thesis to, in the words of Fredrica Thompsett, “weave a tapestry of advice,” which clearly lifts up the symbols and values of baptism and the ministry of the baptized as expressed in the liturgies of Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist. I am not convinced that both sacraments have seeped into the core of the life and faith of the average Episcopalian in such ways to move us clearly beyond coming to a worship service for solace only and not strength for ministry in the world. -- Abstract.
